Hello- this mix is interesting, but far too mild for oil based paints, and modern acrylic/ alkyds. No-one mentioned the new version of the old-fashioned way, hot air guns are cheap, the better ones are adjustable, and they don't need the high level of skill and safety required by blow torches (It's quite hard to set fire to the peeling paint or the wood below with a gun, but almost inevitable with a torch). They are great for peeling off plastic tiles, softening plastic pipe, and helping BBQs along when you are done with paint scaping..... the only time I've ever seen a problem is when someone didn't shield window glass when stripping the frames!
There's no harmful chemicals, and far fewer fumes from the softening paint.
